Life

I do write about everyday happenings in my life. I try to keep these to a minimum, but sometimes real life is the only thing I can write about.

Small Cars in Norway

When I first arrived to Norway in November of 2011, I was in immense culture shock. One thing that still intrigues me is the size of the vehicles here. I almost felt like I was in a Jason Bourne movie (well, without all the fighting, gun shots, and the hot German woman from Run Lola Run).

Here’s a small gallery (which I add to from time to time) of the small cars I’ve found in Norway (for those on mobile phones, here’s a direct link).

Why I Enjoy Killing the Un-dead

Left for Dead 2

It’s been quite an inside joke how much I love playing the game Left for Dead 2 (i.e., the most awesome zombie killing game ever). My friends, family, and co-workers will typically ask me, “So, how many zombies did you slay this weekend?”

My typical response is, “Thousands. And I didn’t even write a note to their mothers thanking them for the pleasure.”

I'm in Norway

This post has been a long time coming, but I’ve moved to Oslo, Norway. Why a long time coming? Well, I’ve been here off and on since November of 2011.

How I got here is a rather long story, but let’s just say the opportunity arose, and I jumped on it.

Welcome to Norway…

I’ve grown up in various climates. When I was a kid, I lived in snowy Tonapah, Nevada.

Mistakes

In life, we make mistakes. They’re as concrete as paying taxes and dying.

I often quote a saying: “If people supposedly learn from their mistakes, why are we not all geniuses?”

Regardless if mistakes make a person smarter, I do think mistakes in life are an absolute necessity.

There are the dumb redneck mistakes that make up the joke, “How do you know a redneck is about to die?”

I'm Taking Voice Lessons

I’ve always been one to try to perfect (as much as possible) a craft I love and enjoy. For example, I got heavily into film and slide photography when I was a college student. As a result, when digital photography exploded, I was already ready and knew more about film theory than most people.

The same with dancing. I’ve always been a terrible dancer, but my ex-wife forced me to take lessons.

Karaosync at AppleBees

Every Wednesday and Saturday at 9pm there is Karaoke at the Applebees in Edmond, Oklahoma on 15th and Broadway.

I would argue that the Karaoke there is the best I’ve ever seen. Check it out or call ahead.

Here are some pictures from last Saturday night. This wasn’t a special occasion. The crowd was just soooo pumped.

Welcome to Oklahoma City

So several of you have been asking, “Where are the blog posts?!” Especially my sister, who always finds time to nag me from Iraq.

To say life has been busy lately has been an understatement, and my blog has been a rather low priority. So let’s get started with some updates.

I now live in Oklahoma City

Towards the end of February, I was in need of a full-time job.

The Highway of Legends

I decided to visit my mom in Trinidad, Colorado, so I made the road trip from Austin, Texas (about a 12 hour drive).

For anybody that has made the drive through north Texas, you have my sympathies. It’s a boring ass drive. Luckily I had my music and several containers of 5-hour Energy.

My mother lives near Trinidad, Colorado in a place called Weston.
